- Deadly Drug Krokodil May Have Entered the U.S
Several reports indicate that the dangerous drug Krokodil may have made its way into the United States from Russia. There are two people in the state of Arizona suspected of using the drug, which is known to rot the skin from the inside.
The team at the Banner Good Samaritan Poison & Drug Information Center in Phoenix have are having trouble confirming the injections were krokodil as the drugs have not yet been tested. They have stated that two other cities in the United States also have unconfirmed cases of krokidil injections.
Krokodil gets its name due to its ability to rot the skin from the inside leaving bone and muscle tissue exposed. The skin will also take a scaly and green appearance, which looks similar to that of a crocodile. This causes most users to dies from loss of skin, infection, and gangrene.
According to the Journal of Addictive Diseases, krokadil was first used in Russia in 2003. It is a homemade drug which combines codeine, lighter fluids, gasoline, paints thinner, alcohol, and other harmful ingredients to give users a feeling similar to heroin.
The drug became popular as other drugs were difficult to smuggle, while its homemade ingredients were not. This caused the drug to spread rapidly throughout Russia, and ultimately make its way into the United States.

Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
Phillips law group is the best around!
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
Sophia H is very helpful.
